You can now access Supra from your NorthstarMLS listings to assign your KeyBoxes, view your Supra showing activity and view your Supra KeyBox settings. (We are also working to make this feature available for Sentrilock users soon).

To manage Supra for your listings (where you are the List Agent), bring up the Property Full Display for the listing(s) where you want to manage Supra KeyBox.  The fastest way to do this is through the “My Listings” box on the Matrix home screen, or click the “My Matrix” tab and then “My Listings.”

Click the MLS # to open the Property Full Display.  The new Supra icons display in the icons box below the main photo:

Click the Supra icon for the activity you want to perform.  Mouseover any Supra icon to get a pop-up reminder of what it does.

We are very excited to bring you this new feature and hope you will enjoy the convenience.  As always, lockbox questions/issues should be directed to your member Association.  If you have questions about using the new icons, contact our Help Desk at 651-251-5456 (or toll free at 1-877-251-5455) during business hours M-F, 8:00-5:00.

We are pleased to announce two upgrades released today to the Add/Edit system.

1)  Add/Edit Media. We have made several usability improvements to the Add/Edit Media function, including larger photo thumbnails and other minor changes make it easier to add/edit photos, supplements and virtual tours.

2) Teams. You have always been able to create work teams in Matrix.  Now Team maintenance has been moved to the Add/Edit system with the Teams functionality extending to both Add/Edit and Matrix.  One person on the team creates the team, and assigns other agents to the team who can then access all listings assigned to the team.  You choose whether team members can access team resources in just Add/Edit, just Matrix or both systems.

Office assistants can also be added to the team to handle listing maintenance.  In the coming weeks, we will release tutorial videos and have in-person sessions available with NorthstarMLS staff to help with set-up.  In the meantime, click here for instructions if you want to go ahead and get started on your own.

For questions, email help@northstarmls.com or call 651-251-5456 (or toll free at 1-877-251-5455) during business hours M-F, 8:00-5:00.

Here is what the Teams link looks like on the Add/Edit home page menu. Click it to access the Teams functionality described in the documentation:

When logging into Matrix, you’ve likely become accustomed to pop-ups of important news alerts from the NorthstarMLS communications team. You have the option to read the news item and click “I’ve Read This” or chose to “Read Later.”

What lurks behind those news alerts? Once you have clicked, “I’ve Read This” or “Read Later” on each news item, the news alerts will disappear. Now you will find your customizable Matrix dashboard, which includes: Instanet Forms, InfoSparks, Realtors Property Resource, My Listings and much more.
